Take Skate Off & Insert Foot in Mouth

Oh man.  It seems like a classic case of foot-in-mouth but figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi is getting some heat on social media about a tweet she posted, wishing Dancing with the Stars contestant and fellow-figure skater, Nancy Kerrigan good luck in the competition.  But it was the choice of words in her tweet that got attention:

I probably don't need to tell you Kerrigan is known for being attacked by a dude with a bat back in 1994 which...broke her leg...

Was Kristi being insensitive or is this a classic foot-in-mouth mistake?
